Two Weeks Until Christmas: What Will You Be Up To?

With Christmas just two weeks away on Friday, William Hill are predicting what the big day will look like according to their festive flutters. The odds indicate that while we may all be dreaming of one, a White Christmas may not be on the cards with odds of 5/2 in Aberdeen and 5/1 in London.

When you look in your stocking, there will more than likely be a copy of the X Factor winner’s single which is the 5/6 favourite to be the Christmas number one single, the Guinness Book Of World Records which is 2/1 favourite for number one book and Call of Duty: Black Ops III  which is 7/4 to be the number one computer game.

After your Christmas dinner, it is time to settle down in front of the TV where the odds suggest that, much like last year, Mrs Brown’s Boys will be the number one show.
